Apple is keeping mum about next generation handsets. But iPhone 6, iPhone 5S release date rumors get impetus with latest leaks

Apple’s next generation handset, iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S seems to be coming close. Though there were many rumors that the handset would be showcased during the recently concluded Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2013, but unfortunately Apple decided against it and didn’t showcase the handset as was being anticipated by Apple fans and those people who are awaiting its arrival to buy it.

Market analysts have repeatedly said that the next generation iPhone version will be a make or break opportunity for the Cupertino based company. If the handset is well received in the market as it was received till the iPhone 4S, the handset will improve the fortune of the biggest tech company in the world substantially.

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference where Apple showcased its next generation iPhone and iPad operating system in the form of iOS 7 besides a few other products failed to find any favors with the public. Since its WWDC its stock price is tanking and tanking without any respite. During WWDC 2013 Apple’s stock price was around $450 that has gone down to merely $412.

The interest in the next generation iPhone is high also because of the fact that people think that apart from being a great handset it will be an Apple savior. More leaks have started coming out and now the whole front assembly of the device has been leaked to media that suggests that the new-generation iPhone will have only slight changes in its design. It will nearly look like the current iPhone5 with the same screen size and bezels. Well, there will barely have any noticeable difference between the current iPhone and the new iPhone variant. It is amazing that the leaked front panel shows the device to feature the same display and bezels, and it is even to position the earpiece, front camera and the sensors quite identical to the iPhone 5.

The latest pics give a very definite idea as to how the handset will look. The flex cable that connects the display screen and digitizer has been changed. It suggests that Apple would have entirely revamped internals of the device. It has been expected that Apple will introduce a new processor, better RAM and similar advanced internals to the device to make it competitive enough to take on the current lineup of top end Android phones.  On the back of the assembly, there are some minor changes. Even though there is not total change to the very design of the machine. Or this could be the assembly of the much-awaited cheaper iPhone. Or the leaked parts of the iPhone could just be fake.
